Coriolanus Trailer Starring Ralph Fiennes

Coriolanus Trailer: Ralph Fiennes Modernizes Shakespeare

William Shakespeare's Coriolanus is getting quite an update in Ralph Fiennes's action take on the story. Fiennes is making his directorial debut and starring in the title role of the film, based on Shakespeare's war tragedy of a Roman general who is exiled by his people despite his military successes. The angry soldier rises back up (for a time, anyway) thanks to an uneasy alliance with Aufidius (Gerard Butler). Though Fiennes's version of Coriolanus appears to take place in modern time, the characters use Shakespeare's original dialogue.

It all makes for a pretty epic, heart-pounding preview with an intensely intimidating Fiennes at the forefront. I'm a big fan of Shakespeare adaptations that think outside the box, so I'm eager to check this one out. Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Redgrave, and Brian Cox also star. Watch the trailer when you
